“Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and your water is clear?” Excerpt from Chapter 15, Tao Te Ching
Come settle your mud with like-minded people seeking serenity led by Meg Artley. Each class will begin with gentle and relaxed movement that you can do from your chair, couch or bed. After we get our bodies warm and relaxed, Meg will lead a guided meditation using techniques for stilling the mind that will include formal and informal mindfulness practices, breathing techniques, inspirational literature, sound, and hand gestures among other methods. The objective is to still the mind long enough to find clarity, peace and comfort — and to bring these gifts to your everyday life.
Meg Artley, E-RYT 500, has worked toward clarity and peace in her life through the practice of yoga, meditation, art-making and writing, a journey she has shared at www.lostandfoundyoga.com.
